The journey begins in the direction of Fajã das Galinhas, where we will find an incredible view (700 meters high) difficult to describe.
We will go to places you never imagined could exist, we will see the REAL MADEIRA, where most people live…
Along the way (Narrow & Steep Roads – Ancient Paths), up the hill, we will make several stops for photos or explanations, being able to contemplate a fantastic scenery of banana trees, tropical fruits, local plantations or vineyards (this route seems painted in green or bronze).
The vines testify to the deep relationship between man and nature, in a communion of hard but beautiful work.
After we keep going up to Boca dos Namorados viewpoint (1000m).
From here we will be able to see Curral das Freiras (Nuns Valley), village nestled on one of the many volcanic craters, which originated the Island. The village is so named as it is believed that it was the place chosen by a group of nuns to take shelter from the attacks of pirates and corsairs.
The warning of an unforgettable trip that, at this point, is done through off road trails towards Jardim da Serra, land of cherries and chestnut trees, journey of the senses as the intense perfumes (fragrant mimosa and eucalyptus) of the forest and the utter calmness of the cultivated fields overwhelms us.
It will be here, in this picturesque village, that we will make our stop in a very local space for a drink – Coffee, Homemade Poncha, Madeira Wine, Rum or something else (optional).
On the road again, we will have the opportunity to do another off-road, where we will cross the Henriques Henriques vineyards, admiring stunning landscapes.
The next visiting point will be the Cabo Girão, Europe’s highest sea cliff, with its 580mts of altitude hanging over the ocean. This is a perfect spot to admire the diversity of the natural beauty of the island – 10 or 15 minuts stop.
After that, we will descend until finally reaching the blue sea, with the colorful boats typical of Câmara de Lobos, that rest of the fishing. Along the way, we will cross several local plantations, where we can see several tropical fruits, mixed with sugar cane, banana trees, etc ….
At our next stop, we can take a short walk and observe the village of Câmara de Lobos from a different perspective…
